Superdeep vocal release by the mysterious Dub duo Illyah & Ltd. Candy! With their Electronica synths re-configured to an hitherto unknown Roots matrix they manage to travel effortlessly through the inner and outer rims of Dub, leaving all genre boundaries behind - and creating something truely unique on the way!
"Fight The Formation" will instantly grip you by the virtual throat with its honest-to-bone drums and the high voltage waves of Illyah's old Hungarian oscillator. On top of that Candy's husky female vocal harmonies won't fail to send electrifying heebie-jeebies up and down your spine while the hookline is sure to haunt you for days! You have been warned!
"Poor Girl" comes from a more classical Dub angle. Around heavy offbeats Candy's harmonies are driven to mind-blowing perfection here, culminating in a fine spacy climax full of deepest deepness wherever you look.

An absolutely brilliant and unique take on the many genres this release floats between. Illyah's production skirts between dub and abstract downtempo, and Ltd. Candy brings a sense of soul in a way not often heard in a reggae. Dub anchors this, but it's emotion on the level of My Bloody Valentine that carries it. Considering it's their first release ever, a magnificent achievement.
